Ask anyone who has dived or snorkeled in Belize about their experience and they will tell you how awesome it was! The Belize Barrier Reef offers clear visibility and an abundance of marine life making Belize one of the top destinations for diving and snorkeling in the world. Just watch this video and you will see what we mean:

The top Maya ruins include: Caracol, Altun Ha, Xunantunich, Cahal Pech and Lamanai. Watch the video below to learn more:

Many travelers on their Belize vacation escape to one of these islands for a day of diving, snorkeling or relaxation. Laughing Bird Caye is one of our favorite island escape from Placencia and is a perfect destination to dive or snorkel.

The food in Belize has been described as one of the best in Central America.

Fresh lobster, shrimp and snapper can easily be found in restaurants around Belize particularly in destinations like Placencia or Ambergris Caye.

One of our popular nature tours is the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary which consists of more than 128,000 acres of lush tropical jungle and is also home to the only jaguar preserve on the planet.

Belize Culture

Belize is the ultimate melting pot of cultures including Creole, Mayan, Garifuna, Spanish, British, Chinese and American.

Because the country is so ethnically diverse, it enjoys racial harmony as well as religious tolerance and has developed a reputation for being welcoming and friendly to travelers.

In addition, the official language of Belize is English making it easy for travelers to get around.

Belize is relatively easy to get around because of its size.

You can be hiking a Maya city in the morning and in the afternoon you can be on the beach relaxing or taking a drink.
